PragmataPro 0.827 loading time, a giant running like a cheetahWith the help of @kelas and other good friends of Pragmata Pro from the open source community, version 0.827 comes with a brand new ligature substitution engine which is 10-20x faster than before, depending on the input.

Now Pragmata Pro, with its 9437 glyphs, can be loaded in a few µs.
Practically a giant who run like a cheetah!

 


— Java and C/C++ reserved keywords are now kerned

PragmataPro C++ and Java reserved keywords kerned with GPOS table

Pragmata Pro™ is the first monospaced typeface to offer precise glyph positioning in common programming keywords, enabled by default in editors that support OpenType GPOS table.
The consistency and orthogonality of fixed pitch is now combined with the finesse of a proportional font.
The result is less tiring, aesthetically pleasing coding experience.
Your eye will know the difference before you do.
